Reveal CommentLouis Vaughan Williams bt Alastair Kidner (Jan 31) 6-2, 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "A wet game under the lights on a cold January evening in Charlton; it was a close match with Al having many a break point, but often not quite managing to take advantage! The most important of which at 4 all in the second set with a chance to go 5-4 up he let me off by slamming a soft serve into the net - a few shots later and the game had gone my way. Another day things might have been different... A good game given the conditions, thanks again!"  -- Louis

Player Comments:

  • "thrilling game with passers by walking with their dogs or friends, stopping to watch the action in Greenwich Park tennis courts. Ups and downs in's and out's this match had everything. It's just amazing that at the end a winner was declared. Local ace and courtside manager Mark complimented the pair on their strokes after the match. Unbelievable action on a chilly January Saturday afternoon in South East London. Happy Days!"  -- Don
Reveal CommentAlastair Kidner bt Don Greenwood (Jan 7) 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A good game on a slippy court in cold but calm conditions. Don hadn't played in a long time so was understandably rusty to begin with, but staged an impressive mid-set tie break to put Al under real pressure to close out the set. The second set saw perhaps a higher quality overall but saw the same pattern imerge, with Al's serve probably the difference overall. An odd aside; the number of animals that decided to visit the court! With all the pigeons, squirrels and crows that invaded the court at various points it was like an episode of farthing wood!"  -- Alastair
Reveal CommentAndrew Wright bt Alastair Kidner (Dec 24) 6-4, 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "A really high quality match in cold but otherwise good conditions. Andy made the quicker start and moved into a 4-1 lead without much trouble. Al began to fight back a bit more but Andy held serve well to win the first. The second was a slightly strange but satisfying match up, with both players struggling on their own serve but numerous games going to deuce alongside points with the shot count hitting the thirties. Despite going as far as the tie break, Andy was always just ahead throughout and deserved the victory. Well played!"-- Alastair
Reveal CommentAlastair Kidner bt Ben Sheppee (Dec 23) 6-1, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "A good match in really tough, windy conditions. Al adjusted quickest in the first set and managed to see it out, but Ben staged a magnificent comeback from 4-1 down in the 2nd set to be within a couple of points of the set, with his lobs being particularly potent as the conditions eased up. In the end Al's serve just about got him over the line but the 2nd could have gone either way. Thanks for the great game Ben!" -- Alastair

Player Comments:

  • "A fine tussle with momentum shifting first towards Roger and then back with Angus in the second set. Ultimately, Roger was simply too strong and too fit, with excellent concentration to recover the second tie break from a 0-3 beginning. For a number of spectacular recoveries of apparently un-reachable balls, Roger earned the victory with true grit and style. "  -- Angus

Player Comments:

  • "A great match with Herve streaking ahead to take the first set and establishing a forceful 5-2 lead in the second with many devastating cross-court forehands at un-reachable angles. Angus escaped two (or three?) match points to steal a psychological advantage. Coupled with some lucky net calls, this was enough to grind out a stubborn victory against a player on superior form and with superior fire-power. "  -- Angus
